    [San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore] said the deputies thought Orey’s open gate looked suspicious, so they went into her backyard. The deputies ran into Orey, and one of them had a “spontaneous reaction.”
    A person that jumpy could just as easily have shot his one of his partners.

    Doesn't sound good at all. Must have been a reactionary shot. I wonder if the cop was new.

    Will, or should, this incident be investigated the same as it would be if it was the homeowner that had the “spontaneous reaction”? Should the outcome of the investigation be different depending on who was shot?

    Assuming the facts are as told, which appear to be so given the quote about the police even indicating she was not carrying anything, the officer who shot this woman should be fired and brought up on appropriate charges.

    Dressing up as a deer in deer season can be dangerous. When awaiting the inbound cavalry, it's easy to be mistaken for a likely-armed, unknown person on your property if you do everything to appear as a likely-armed, unknown person on that property.

    Seems simple to me, but I'd think it's far better to either (a) stay inside until they've arrived and made contact, or (b) stay on the phone with dispatch until they've arrived and made contact. Either that, or don't call them while you head out to "clear" your own property, as is typical with folks in the boondocks on their own farms/ranches.

    As for being shot, I wonder what the actual perceived threat was, or whether the mere appearance of another person was the trigger.

    Spontaneous reaction is what happens after eating a burrito,Sounds like the LEO had his booger hook on the bang switch and shot an unarmed homeowner.
    I've been out on suspicious person calls back in the day,and even ran into a few homeowners that called it in,we surprised them and not the other way around,since we moved slow and methodical and kept our fingers off the trigger while looking and listening for any perps.
    This is the kind of guy thats gonna end up shooting his partner because he may want to be a Cop,but is deep down inside scared to death that he may get injured or killed

    So the home owner calls reporting a man wearing a ski mask and they shoot her? This definitely sounds like a cop who shouldn't be a cop and also sounds like a cop who could very well kill his own partner.

    I have nothing against competent officers but cops like this guy are the reason many do not have faith in or trust LE.

    He needs to be fired and brought up on the same charges any civilian would be if they committed the same CRIME.

    OK, going outside was not the best move, but do we really need cops that shoot anything that moves??? And then make false statements to the press - well we shot her, but only in the arm. When the facts are they shot her in the chest and a fragment hit her hand. Sounds like more than one officer here screwed up.

    Wow! There goes a career in Law Enforcement. I hope she recovers and collects some well earned coin for her suffering.

    Not defending the LEO, but there are common-sense things we can do to protect ourselves from an over-zealous responder.

    A couple years ago, my neighbor's (who are also my parents, who were out of town at the time), alarm went off and I got a call from our local dispatch that officers were en-route. I said "great", I'm going to stay here in the house while ya'll check it out. When your officer is ready to speak to me, have him give me a call, and I'll meet them. 15 minutes later, after investigating, the officer called and asked if I could come out. I told him that I'd be coming out the front door and that I'd be turning on the front porch light prior to coming out.

    Nobody taught me to do that. It just seemed like common sense to take every precaution to ensure that I was not mistaken for the prowler.

    This is why it is better to shoot the burglar yourself, then call the cops to haul the body off, while you are safely inside your house with the lights on.
